Cooking with Stevie Wonder (or 3 posts in one day! eeek!)

I'm thinking about starting a cooking blog.  Not that I'm a good cook, but I certainly enjoy it and moreso, I love, love experimenting and trying out new dishes. When I was a teen-ager and still in my parents house, my father would like to say I had a 100 recipes for chicken. 

I'm resisting the temptation to start reading cooking blogs because I don't need another distraction or internet interest even though I want to.  I might just decide to incorporate a 'burn it up recipe Sunday' or something like that.  Today I'm preparing a chicken-spinach stir-fry with ginger, red pepper, soy sauce, olive oil, going over rice...we useta eat a lot of rice and the best could be found at an Asian grocer that was the first of its kind here in Louisville and now closed. We would buy a 25 lb bag of Jasmine rice from the Philipines.  It was so aromatic and had a great taste. A 25 lb bag would last about 9-10 months.  I love making one pot stews that go over rice with a hunk of bread and a beer or wine! 

Stevie is still at it.  I'll give this private concert up in about an hour when my petites come busting through the door bringing in the noise from their day.


  1. I like the idea of a "burn it up Sunday"... Heck, I might even contribute a recipe or two of my own.

  2. I love the "burn it up Sunday" idea too. Do it do it!! [grinz]
    I enjoyed seeing your book list too!

  3. Jasmine rice is so good. We use it a lot. Yummm!

  4. the recipe idea. How about sharing the chicken spinach stir fry? I find sometimes its hard to write down recipes since I cook by look and taste.
    We love to go to Ranch 99, our local Asian market. They have everything! Jen

  5. I love rice! I heard the new Stevie album while at the bookstore. I like it.

  6. Great idea Karoda....I have been trying out new recipes quite a bit lately too. Shakin' it up a bit! And I looove anything over rice. There is a short grain brown rice I have to go to Boise to get, can't find it up here....but it is so nutty and yummy!
